With the amount of walking that one does in New York City, a good pair of shoes is a necessity, but finding ones that you can also wear with a cute outfit can be quite the struggle. That is why a quality pair of suede wedges is a must-have for any New Yorker. Wedges are stylish, comfortable, and professional, giving every outfit the perfect combination of comfort and class. Clarks shoes are a great choice for New Yorkers, offering both support and style. Check out the Bassett Mine in Black Suede, for a shoe that is perfect for anytime, anywhere wear.
2. The Colorful Cardigan
As we move into the cooler weather, light, but warm, clothing is becoming necessary. As a New Yorker, your closet probably consists of black, black, and some more black. That is why a patterned cardigan is perfect for sprucing up any one of those 20 black outfits, and it’ll keep you just warm enough. Check out Forever 21 for a multitude of various colorful cardigans and shawls that are both cute and affordable.
3. Darker Lipstick
The fun thing about fall is all the colors that is brings, Central Park becomes a vibrant show of bright reds, yellows, and oranges. Emulate those change in colors with a change in your lipstick. Go from a bright summery color, to a deeper, more vibrant color for all. What color and how dark will depend on your skin tone, but lipstick colors with purple and burgundy undertones are what you should look for. There are thousands of makeup stores in New York, but Sephora offers a wide variety of colors for low prices.
4. A Knit Scarf
A scarf is the perfect accessory for any fall outfit, and they make you feel instantly cozier. Although having endless amounts of scarves is the ideal for any New Yorker, if we have to choose one, it would be the Grey Knit Scarf. The grey knit scarf is ultra-cozy, and matches most any outfit. Etsy is one great site to find affordable, cute scarves. Scarves are also along most every street in New York if you find yourself on the go and in need of one in the moment.
5. The Leather Jacket
If you are a New York and do not have a leather jacket, you need to make sure your priorities are in order. The perfect leather jacket can be difficult to find, but it is a essential to the fall look. Leather jackets do not keep you very warm, and therefore are more difficult to wear when the weather gets too cold. Fall is the perfect time to break out your leather jacket and show off you classic New York style. Forever 21 is also a great place to find that leather jacket; it may not be real leather, but it’ll look just as good.
